Just hours after Saul Phillips' introductory press conference with the Ohio Bobcats, the North Dakota State Bison announced that current assistant David Richman will be promoted to head coach in Fargo.
Richman has been with the Bison for the past 11 years, but is only 35 years old. He was promoted to associate head coach under Phillips in 2007. Richman is a 2002 graduate of North Dakota State and also spent some time at Northern Iowa as a student assistant. Beyond Phillips, Richman has worked in some capacity under Tim Miles, Ray Giacoletti, and Greg McDermott.
North Dakota State will enter next season as the reigning Summit League champions after winning the regular season and tournament title. The Bison had one of the more memorable moments of the NCAA Tournament when they knocked out Oklahoma, a five seed, in the second round. NDSU finished the season 26-7.
